PLAY - EXPLORE - LEARN - GROW
Our classes are held almost exclusively outside as children are encouraged to learn through their greatest tool: PLAY.
Forest Time Kindergarten provides children with a safe environment to explore nature, grow and learn. Child led learning takes precedent as adults are there to guide and assist.
It is our hope your children will discover a lasting love of the outdoors and learning through out program.
Setting Them Up For Success
Children with nature rich, playful and child centered experiences learn to manage risk, have better critical thinking skills, score higher on standardized testing.
Additionally, these kids also experience less anxiety, have better focus, improved social skills and a sense of self confidence gained from unique challenges.
Research shows forest school kids also have healthier, more neurologically integrated bodies (think fine & gross motor skill development).
See our RESOURCES Page for further research.
